As I mentioned last week, Sharon's family has some deep connections with Gonzaga. As a result, She and I watched all of the Gongaza versus Baylor NCAA basketball championship game. Gonzaga came into the game with a record of 31 wins and 0 losses!
Falling behind 9 to 0 in the first few minutes of the game and trailing by 19 points in the first half, Gonzaga went on to lose to Baylor by the score of 86 to 70. It felt like Gongaza was never really in the game.
Jared Bulter was the high scorer for Baylor. He had 22 points on 6 for 14 from the field, 4 for 9 from three and 6 for 6 from the free throw line.
Jalen Suggs was the high scorer for Gonzaga. He had 22 points on 8 for 15 from the field, 2 for 5 from three and 4 for 6 from the free throw line.
Baylor was quicker and more athletic than Gonzaga. I kept hearing about how the Zags had four NBA players on the team. While I was impressed with Suggs, I am not particularly impressed with Timme or Kispert. I am not sure that I think that either of them has an NBA body or game. Kispert reminds me too much of Jimmer...
